Jetstar and Airbnb have announced a partnership that will allow customers to book Airbnb accommodation along with their flights.
Jetstar Group CEO, Jayne Hrdlicka, said: “Airbnb has changed the way a large number of Australians travel in the last few years, particularly Jetstar customers travelling on holidays.
“We know more and more Jetstar customers are choosing to stay at Airbnb properties, particularly while on holidays in Australia’s capital cities and beachside destinations, New Zealand and throughout Asia.
“This partnership between Jetstar and Airbnb makes it even easier for Australians to book low fare flights and homestay accommodation for their next holiday.”
Jetstar is the first low-cost airline to partner with the accommodation platform, but last year fellow Australian airline Qantas announced its own team-up with Airbnb. That partnership gives Qantas Frequent Flyer members the opportunity to earn Qantas Points when they book their Airbnb accommodation via the airline’s website.
The partnership follows research by Galaxy Research, which found that 91% of the 1,000-plus people surveyed are considering booking a homestay accommodation for their next extended family holiday.
